Military at School of Politics and Global Studies

As one of the largest schools at Arizona State University, we are proud to offer and tailor our unique programs to current and prospective military/veterans. Both of our majors and our International Studies certificate are incredibly applicable to many interesting careers in both government service and the private sector.

Arizona State University is honored to be named as a "Military Friendly School" by G.I. Jobs magazine for the last four years and was named one of the "Top 10 Best for Vets: Colleges 2011" by the Military Times Edge magazine and the School itself aims to serve our large veteran and ROTC community to the best of our abilities. We work closely with the Tillman Center to integrate our resources as much as possible and provide the best program to our substantial military community.  To see how our program can assist in both current and future careers for service men and women, please visit the ASU Pat Tillman Center.
